Web Caching & Acceleration


What is Web Caching & Acceleration ?

Web caching is the caching of web documents (e.g., HTML pages, images) in order to reduce bandwidth usage, server load, and perceived “lag”. A web cache stores copies of documents passing through it; subsequent requests may be satisfied from the cache if certain conditions are met.

A web accelerator is a proxy server that reduces web site access times. Web accelerators may use several techniques to achieve this reduction. Web accelerators may cache recently or frequently accessed documents so they may be sent to the client with less latency or at a faster transfer rate than the remote server could. Web accelerators may freshen objects in the cache ensuring that frequently accessed content is readily available for display.
